Rosemary Rose gets new lifetime mark in Meadows $18,000 Filly and Mare pace

Washington, PA – Rosemary Rose let Touchamatic do the heavy lifting in the slop, then roared by her in the lane to score a decisive victory, her fifth in her last seven starts in Wednesday’s (July 17) $18,000 Filly & Mare Open Handicap Pace.

Rosemary Rose yielded the early lead to Touchamatic, who had to go a :26.2 opening panel to make the front. When Dave Palone moved Rosemary Rose outside in the stretch, she was by far the stronger mare, defeating Touchamatic by 1-3/4 lengths in a career-best 1:50.3. Keystone Riptide finished third.

Ron Burke trains the 5-year-old daughter of Foreclosure N-Pantathlon, who now boasts $496,867 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable, Jason Melillo and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

Aaron Merriman and Mike Wilder each piloted three winners on the 14-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday (July 20) when the card features three eliminations of the $475,000 Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids as well as a pair of stakes for freshman filly pacers and a $4,051.60 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 1:05 PM.
